Skeletal Anchorage in Orthodontic Treatment of Class II Malocclusion provides a clear and detailed set of practical guidelines for the application of techniques employed in the most frequently encountered problem requiring treatment in orthodontic practice.
The practice of orthodontics has recently seen a fundamental change in direction, and treatment now emphasizes the application of stationary anchorage achieved by different types of implants without the necessity of patient compliance. This brand new title addresses the clinical use of all currently available skeletal anchorage devices, including orthodontic implants, miniplates, and miniscrew implants, which can be utilized to support the orthodontic treatment of patients presenting with Class II malocclusion.
The volume comprises a comprehensive and critical review aiming to present the principles and techniques as well as to emphasize the scientific evidence available regarding the contemporary applications and the clinical efficacy of these treatment modalities.
Extensively illustrated throughout, this this brand new book examines all aspects of a more efficient use of skeletal anchorage devices, including biological and biomechanical considerations, and also features an in-depth discussion of possible complications and risk management. Divided into nine sections, Skeletal Anchorage in Orthodontic Treatment of Class II Malocclusion addresses the issues at the heart of current orthodontic treatment and practice, giving a comprehensive overview from a global perspective.
